The Tatsfield History Project

This project was developed by the team responsible for the publication of 'Tatsfield - the First 2,000 Years' in 1999.  This book is now out of print.  Copies can, however, be borrowed from Surrey County Council libraries under reference LOC 942.2TAT .  Second-hand copies can sometimes be found for sale on the internet.

An archive based on the records of Tatsfield Parish Council has been expanded to include nearly 4,000 items about or referring to Tatsfield.  The archive catalogue is accessible from the menu above.  Enquiries about the details of individual items and requests for copies should be sent to the email address below.  Burial records from 1870 until 2004 are available on request.

Information about the history of Tatsfield is also available at the Caterham and District Local History Centre in Caterham Valley Library.

The Surrey History Centre can provide more information online, as can the  National Archives.  

The first documented reference to Tatsfield was in the Domesday Book.

Details have been transcribed from census returns and directories.   We are able to respond relatively quickly to email requests for information from our archivesThis can be especially useful if you are researching your family history.  (Please include ‘Research Enquiry’ in the subject line to avoid your email being consigned accidently to the ‘spam’ bin.) 

Please note that incoming emails will be stored and the information they contain will be retained unless you specifically ask for this not to happen.  It can often happen that one person's enquiry contains an answer to another person's question and it may from time to time be appropriate to ask you whether you would be happy for another enquirer to contact you direct.
